NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Under Armour (UA) - Get Report are falling 4.09% to $39.67 today after reporting lower-than-expected 2016 second quarter earnings yesterday, but analysts at Suntrust said the sell-off has been "overdone."
The company reported earnings of 1 cent per share yesterday before the opening bell falling below estimates of 3 cents per share, and revenue of $1 billion which was largely in line with Wall Street's expectations. Following the report, shares of Under Armour fell nearly 5%.
However, Suntrust said in an analyst note that investor reaction was excessive. The company's fundamentals are still intact, the firm added.
"We believe guidance is prudently cautious given the ongoing mix-shift to lower margin footwear and continued Sports Authority headwinds," Suntrust said.
Footwear growth alongside key sponsorships - including NBA player Steph Curry - and international expansion, the potential for women's, kids, and connected fitness and untapped wholesale avenues have given the firm "confidence" in the company's long-term growth profile.
Suntrust reiterated its "buy" rating and $55 price target on Baltimore, MD-based company's stock.
